In asking for tho endorsement of Judgo Kepoikai by tho people tho speakers called attention to tho fact that
vauai had been honored by placing Sanford 13. Dole in the governors chair; that Oahu had likewise been honored in the

kai, a man who is son of the soil,a man who claims the highest respect of every man, woman and child on Maui; a man
who has always been true to his party; a man who had hold responsible position under tho territory in tho Judicial

Sonator Ilaysoldon who was tho last speaker of tho evening but one, spoko from tho crowd and njiid that it gave
him great pleasure to endorse Judge Kepoikai and that ho know that tho Republicans, Democrats and Homo Rulers of
Lahaina would support his endorsement without a second becoming necessary.

Govornor Carter to tho Advertiser. There has boon a lot of discussion of tho attitudo of tho Governor smco tho elec

"My resignation was written, as a matter of fact, on Juno G. I showed it to ono or two of my friends, and they
asked mo to tako timo for reconsideration before acting tinallv. to bo suro that it was not an impulse. I havo taken

Something of a sonsation was 1
experienced last Tuesday evening
about nine o'clock when tho elec
tion returns from Waihce precinct
wore received at Wailuku turning
what should havo been another
glorious and completo republican
victory into a defeat .of two of the
district candidates. In all other
respects Maui County showed a
decided change of political heart
from tho last county election and
should bo an object lesson to party
jumpers that antogonism to thoir
party does not always spell elec
tion. And this same antogonism
acts as a boomerang and places
thein in tho list of al60 rans.
Tho defeat of the republica'n
candidates for supervisor and de
puty sheriff of Wailuku district,
can t)o laid to tho venomous and
' false uttering of the sore-heads.
In the Wailuku district tho bat

structions on bow to mark a bal
lot aro necessary, is shown by tho
number of tickets which had both
candidates for supervisor or for
two of tho threo candidates for
sheriff marked, thus nullifying that
portion of tho ballot. All manner
of scratching was indulged in; re
publican tickets with straight
marking exespt tho ollico of sheriff;
or clerk, or deputy sheriff, or
supervisor or for county attorney.
